Writer • Halloween Storytelling for Michele O’Brien • Corfe Castle, Dorset • October 2017
Alice was commissioned by actor and storyteller Michele O’Brien to create a range of Halloween stories suitable for children of all ages and adults alike. The stories were performed throughout the grounds of Corfe Castle.
For this project, Alice adapted and re-envisioned a number of traditional folk tales which included Grimm’s Hans My Hedgehog, Bat Soup and Norwegian fairy tale The Giant Who Had No Heart in His Body. Alice also wrote an original story-poem: Three Ravens, exploring transformation, patriarchal norms and women within fairy tales.
